I am a novice. I took a couple ornamental horticulture classes in college but didn't take and interest in plants until about 5 years ago. It's strange but that led to a passion in geology as well. I fell in love with the Japanese practice of landscape, probably because my mind works in very symmetrical way yet succulents and cactus are my favorite plants. I encourage anyone interested in plants to download this app and not waste money buying books when all the info is here and very accurate. My sincere thanks to the app designers, a job very well done indeed.
The very1st photo I sent was identified immediately... awesome!!! The 2nd photo I sent came up short... no match. BUT, when I took another set of photos of the plant from different angles, BINGO!!! I even got an acknowledgement from the Garden Answers team admitting that they were stumped & had to dig deeper than usual to finally ID the plant. This is a great FREE app!
This app correctly identified several plants for me. This is very useful because I will encounter things while out walking or that come up unexpectedly in my yard. I am also an herbal medicine practitioner so it's always interesting to find herbs that I have heard about or read about and be able to identify them safely.
I paid 2 dollars to find out what one of the plants in my backyard was. I submitted my question to the horticulturists that would answer my question. They said my answer would be there within 24 hours. My answer arrives later than 24 hours and the horticulturists said they could not identify my plant. They needed flowers to identify. My plant doesn't even have flowers!
Wonderful way of learning more about the house plants and different succulents I recently bought, but didn't get explanations of each. Bought them from Amazon, 20 of them, Want to know which will possibly bloom. GREAT APP. For a nominal fee, you can even ask a Hortaculturist.. AWESOME!!!! Would rate a 10+ if I could.
The photo focused more on the ground around my plant or on my hand holding the plant to get better light than what the leaves actually looked like. Its closest matches didn't even come close to resembling what I was trying to find. Absolute fail.
